Music videos director falls for "Fiasco"

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Music videos veteran Samuel Bayer, who directed Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” has signed on to shoot the action thriller “Fiasco Heights.”

The Universal Pictures project revolves around a gunman who returns to the crime-ridden city of Fiasco Heights and teams with a degenerate gambler/private eye to look for a beautiful femme fatale and a mysterious briefcase.

Bayer is also attached to a remake of “Near Dark,” a 1987 vampire horror originally directed by Kathryn Bigelow. His other music clips include Green Day’s “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” and Justin Timberlake’s “What Goes Around Comes Around.”
